He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not.
He loves me not.
Plucked, torn, cast away.




First comes anger.
Hot then cold.
Screams then tears.

I catch sight of my face in a mirror.
Lit with fury and anguish.

Now its anguish.
Now I watch my laceration.
My single cut.
Across my heart.

I watch it fester, I feel it sear.
And I am leaking.
It is seeping through my incision.

My feelings.
My vehemence, my grief.

Now there’s calm.
A sweet sea of relief, a bandage to my heart.
My broken heart.

I love him, I love him not, I love him, I love him not.
